Chronicles Of Me
Author: Pamela O'Brien


I'll have to skip a few years in the beginning
Because I was only learning
And I don't really remember anything.....

But when I was about six or seven
Oh, I was so curious back then
I often wondered how I would get to heaven

And around the age of nine
I began to treasure my growing mind
I also discovered it can be good to cry

So sometime in year thirteen
There was an increasing drug scene
And I had nowhere else to be

But at sixteen I returned
Completely changed, but somewhat burned
>From going the "hard way" learned

Now, an adult at long last
I realize how time moved so fast
And how much I wish I could go back

Yet there are years ahead to be lived
And hopefully, somebody to live them with
That is the msot special gift

These are some of the things I've seen
Some of the places I've been
Shortened - into the chronicles of me

The news is better than you think, you have grown, now, Stand!


I have always, admired your work, and read your poems without comment, I felt no need, you write like me, or as I try, truth in poetry, not easy to make it rhyme, when it its about life, and it comes back at you. When that happens, sometimes, the words don't..,rhyme.

The circle has been completed, from the poem that rhymes, to the heart that cries, life never rhymes, life is what we want it to be, no poem, no loving touch from Sir Knight, but, what "we" want life to be.

This poem is a dagger, stabbed deep into the heart of truth.

My, compliments, to you.
